What Can’t you do with an Ipod these Days?

From playing games, to converting practically any measurement you need at the click of a button. The new spawn of smart phones and gadgets are, needless to say, impressive. ‘But what’s next?’ you may be asking yourself as you scroll through the thousands and thousands of apps available from the Apple and Verizon store.

Well, I have the answer for you, and is it oh-soooo-sweet. Imagine waking up mid-winter to start your day. It’s so cold outside, the last thing you look forward to is feeling your freezing hair rub against your skin on the drive to work. Fear no more, as the latest and greatest thing for your phone since being able to put 50 Cent’s “Candy Shop” as a customizable ringtone, is (nearly) here with GM and OnStar’s Volt  Mobile Apps .

With this new app, you are able to control several things on your Volt straight from your phone, including: remote control start, lock and unlock, keep track of battery charge and electric  range, schedule when to charge the Volt and when to stop, email or text message alerts when you forget to charge the Volt, and much more. Now you can wake up, check your voice-mail for 18-minute drunk dial calls from last night, then start your car so it will be warm by the time you are ready… no more having to worry about your freezing hair giving you mini cuts on your neck.  You won’t even have to look for your car keys and remote key fob (which are probably attached to your house keys and are hanging from the lock on the door knob of your house’s front door).

To use the app you must be subscribed to OnStar, which, in addition to this great app, has several useful features such as: Automatic Crash Response, Emergency Services, Remote Door Unlock, Roadside Assistance, Crisis Assist, OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation, Hands Free Calling and OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics.

The official app will be released when the Volt comes out.  In the meantime, OnStar has released a demo of the app you can play around with here: OnStarMobileDemo.com
